Course Description

Anatomy and Physiology 101 will cover all the major body systems that interrelate to maintain bodily homeostasis.

Course Requirements

This course is intended for any age learner over the age of 13. However course completion will require a great amount of reading and writing. It is therefore strongly recommended that students to be able to write and read at a high school level.  There are no required books but Recommended Books are listed below.

Course Goals

Course Goals include the following:

1.) Be able to identify the major body systems and understand what each body system does
2.) Be able to relate how each body system works
3.) Be able to identify and explain major cells, tissues, and organs
4.) Be able to identify and explain functions of central muscles and bones

Course Materials

All the course material required to complete this course is contained in this course. This includes 72 netlinks.

Grading Policy

Each lesson is followed by an end of the lesson quiz which will review what is covered in the lesson. Several lessons will also be associated with a related assignment.
